‘‘In certain cases the manager won’t recommend an employee for

another position because they do not want to lose that employee.

It’s not fair for someone to hold you back.’’

‘‘ABC Company is tainted with politics and favoritism. Employees

were given management positions or promotions not for their

skill sets but for how well they were liked in the firm.’’

‘‘I am a working mother of two, and I find it nearly impossible to

move up within my department. My hours are structured (nine

hours a day) but when I am in the office I work my hardest and

strive to achieve my goals. When a project or on-going activities

call for extended hours, I rearrange child care and work as needed.

However, on a daily basis I am disheartened that the subject of

my hours comes into play. My priority is my family, but my life

also includes work that I enjoy. I know there is a delicate balance

for working mothers within the workplace but I’m discouraged

there is not more understanding and flexibility. I have heard sev-

eral times that I need to work longer in order to complete my

goals in order to become promoted. If my nine-hour days are not

being counted or recognized, I feel worthless, as if my work

doesn’t matter.’’

‘‘Discrimination! Too many negative comments regarding women’s

weight, looks, etc. As a result many talented people are undervalued.’’

‘‘Supervisors hire friends as ‘team leads’ instead of the more competent

of the group.’’
